Top Ten Least Diverse Music GenresAngryByrd Just for the record, I'm not saying these genre's are bad, I'm just saying they're repetitive. Enjoy!
The Top Ten
Pop is diverse, only to stay relevant by following trends. A terrible concept. - Shawnty320
I think 1980s pop is even less diverse than 2010s, although I like neither. - Alkadikce
not to me - Luckys
Almost every pop song is about love! - Userguy446 Comments
Despite the fact I dislike trap and mumble rap, hip-hop is a pretty diverse genre, you just have to look deeper. - Shawnty320
Try again Hip-Hop is a culture - MLGPoossySlayer6969
Listen to 2pac biggie smalls or Wu tang clan and come back and say hip hop lacks "diversion"
Wrong! Old School, New School, Horrorcore, Trap, Reggaeton, when it is mixed with Latin music etc. Artists like: DZK, RATM, Lauryn Hill and Slincraze also sound quite different from each other.1 Comment
Completely disagree. Dubstep spans some heavy drops, some mellifluous, some not so much, some with metal and classical samples, and some in a chillout beat. It's a very diverse genre. - PositronWildhawk
Finally, someone who understands that Dubstep isn't really a specific style of electronic music but more of an umbrella term. - Shawnty320
Electronic noise and bass drops with distorted vocals (if any). - AngryByrd
I agree it's all electronic sounds with some weird vocals in the backround with some bass drops, and the loud or softness decreases and increases every now and then - ToptenPizza
How to make a country song:
1. Dress country
2. Find some girls bigger than your refrigerator to prance around
3. Sit on a tractor
4. Start playing guitar
5. Sing about beer and how redneck you are - ToptenPizza
Though I don't like Country myself, it's more diverse than what everyone thinks actually. - Kiteretsunu
Really high pitched vocals, screaming, double bass pedals, and that's about it. It's good but it gets old fast. - AngryByrd
Electric drums, minimal guitars, and repetitive, droning lyrics! I'm not saying all Christian music is bad (heck, a ton of my favorite bands are Christian) but this particular kind just sucks! - AngryByrd
Thank you. There are a million times better Christian bands out there other than these overrated artists. - RiverClanRocks
The black metal you've all heard is probably Burzum, Mayhem, Immortal, Gorgoroth, etc. There are more progressive, older black metal bands out there. Such as Celtic Frost, Emperor, even Opeth were considered progressive black metal on their first two albums. - IronSabbathPriest
Why is classical and jazz on here? To rank either of them among the least diverse genres is ridiculous. I think you need to do your research and actually learn about what you're talking about if you think so. Both genres are very musically complex and both have such a broad range of different styles. They have numerous periods that are often feel quite different from one another in a lot of ways, and tend to have so much variety in musical characteristics like form, rhythm, texture, harmony, orchestration, dynamics and so on. Whereas a genre such as rock adheres to a more basic set of rules with much less overall diversity in musical characteristics.
Baroque music isn't that diverse (e.g. most of Vivaldi's violin concerti sound the same) but to put classical music as a whole here is laughable. There is a diversity in both composition forms and subgenres. - Alkadikce
The only reason classical made it on this list is because people don't take the time to understand how much talent and intelligence goes into it. - LizardKing99
Classical has no lyrics so it is not so diverse. It is symphonic, fast, slow or chaotic. The end.1 Comment
I enjoy some hardstyle every now and then, but I'm not entirely sure if I could sit through a whole DJ set of nothing but hardstyle. It's great hard dance music, but there is still a lot of it that sounds similar. That distorted kick drum would probably get really repetitive after awhile. - Atham
1. Slow start
2. Build up
3. Bass drop
4. Repeat the items above. - Userguy44
Is this really a genre?
Oh wait! If you don't know much J-Pop then don't put it here. J-Pop is not just one genre. It's something which undefinable as it is combination of various genres of music. It's more diverse than what most think of it. - Kiteretsunu
Whoever voted for this better be joking.
Listen to Nirvana, then listen to Sound garden then try to say it "lacks diversity"
No. - Userguy44
You listen people to Keith Jarrett and forget this is piano (couse you need only boom, boom), but think that he is most crative musican with so far imagination. There is no diverse music then jazz improvisation. But there have to be made the mix of jazz, classical, rock and electronics. I'm wating for this. Be there
